Classic Seafood Cioppino (Gluten-Free)

Cioppino is a classic seafood stew developed by Italian fishermen in San Francisco's North Beach area during the late 19th century. Cioppino is a variation on traditional fish soups and stews of southern Italy. It is commonly made from the catch of the day, which in San Francisco usually means a mix of Dungeness crab, clams, shrimp, scallops, squid, mussels and fish. Cooked in a broth of fresh tomatoes, garlic, and white wine, cioppino has become a famous San Francisco delicacy.

Made famous at Fisherman's Wharf eateries like Scoma's, Alioto's and Grotto #9, cioppino is a dish that keeps people coming back. However, you don't have to make it all the way to San Francisco to enjoy this hearty, robust and memorable dish. Fall is a great time to make cioppino. Dungeness crab season is just around the corner, and the dish scales well to serve large numbers of guests.

If you can get good quality fresh fish and seafood, then you can make cioppino, with or without the crab. I like to wait until crab season and go all the way! This recipe is makes enough to serve about 8 to 10 people.

Ingredients:
1/4 cup olive oil
2 onions, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
½ cup fresh Italian parsley, chopped
2 teaspoons dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 quart chicken broth (gluten-free)
½ cup water
1 pinch paprika
1 pinch cayenne pepper
1 cup white wine
25 Manilla clams, fresh, cleaned
25 mussels, fresh, cleaned and de-bearded
25 shrimp, fresh, cleaned and deveined
18 scallops, fresh, rinsed
1½ pounds cod, halibut, or other whitefish fillets, cubed
2 whole Dungeness crabs, cleaned and cracked
Or, if adding just meat, about 2 pounds of cooked Dungeness crabmeat
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
In a large pot over medium heat, heat the olive oil, and saute the onion, garlic until tender. Add parsley, and stir briefly until soft. Add salt and pepper, basil, oregano, thyme, tomatoes, tomato sauce, chicken broth, water, paprika, cayenne pepper.

Stir well, lower heat, and simmer 30 to 45 minutes, adding wine a little at a time.

About 15 minutes before serving, add crab. After 5 minutes, add clams, mussels, prawns, scallops, and fish.

Increase heat a bit and stir gently. When the mussels open, the prawns and crab turn pink, and the cod is flaky, the seafood is done, and your cioppino is ready to serve.

I like to serve it with fresh, gluten-free bread.

I feel the same. Every so often, someone will roll their eyes. I try not to discuss it unless I have to, only because I don't love having the topic of conversation become me, but others seem genuinely curious. Every so often I have a pity party over not being able to just pick up a sandwich a...

I can't remember, but it was a few years ago and maybe it had Maltodextrin in it, or maybe it was the 'flavorings' - which I never eat unless it's from a company like Kraft or McCormick that labels clearly. But given that you eat it safely, maybe I'll contact the company for a clear answer.

So the simple explanation is - You eat gluten. It travels along and gets to your small intestine. For some reason, your small intestine feels it is an invader. but instead of making antibodies that "attack" the gluten, the small intestine cells make antibodies that attack itself. Sort of misg...

Hi - I think some of the issue here may be stemming from confusion about the word "exposed" and the two things in bold above -- while you are very strict about eating gluten, am I right that you've been accidentally eating some and for the past month have accidentally been not-gluten-free? If so...

my thinking was that if I ate gluten tonight again , then the reaction would be there tomorrow not that there would be gluten for them to find exactly. So from what your saying It would make sense - i.e. if my body was going to react to gluten with antibodies then by eating gluten say tonight it ...
